5 Minute Walk

After changing their name to Fold Zandura and going for more of an alternative rock sound, the band formerly known as Mortal regrouped as Mortal to release a one-shot CD for the fledgling 5 Minute Walk Records in 1995. As a CD, it’s a rather eclectic mix of styles that Mortal has dabbled with in the past. You got the industrial, the atmospheric ebm, the shoegazing alterna-ballads, the guitar-driven rock pieces…really, this CD isn’t so much a solid release as it is a hodge podge of styles. Which may be off-putting for fans expecting a certain aspect of Mortal. Lyrically, the songs are deep and personally spiritual, as Mortal has always been. It’s not for everybody, but it’s a good release…
